Amateur station on air for first time with new call

The Amateur Radio Club was on air Saturday, October 20, for the first time using the new vanity call K3RTM (note: the Museum’s call has now changed to K3RTV). Paul Courson wrote, “The station is now wired and fully functional on the 40 meter shortwave band, tuned to frequency 7290 Kilocycles. By happy circumstance, one of the first contacts was Marco, N5ACR, a member of our club ! He checked in from home at Laurel, Maryland.”

Paul made a short video of the first five contacts, which you can watch on YouTube.
